MONDAY: Continued hot and humid with heat indices near 100.
Heat this week looks just above average with highs in the low 90s in the afternoons (the average high right now is 90).
"The lovely weather for the past several days was courtesy of a strong Canadian high pressure system pumping in very dry air", Ritter said.
Heat Advisory: 11 a.m.to 8 p.m. Sunday.
For this Father's Day evening, temperatures will gradually fall through the 80s, and we'll keep a chance for a few spotty showers, about a 20% rain chance.
Father's Day will be a touch cooler but not by much for the metro. Highs will drop into the upper 80s on Wednesday and they'll stay there through Friday. Temperatures will drop into the upper 50s to start the day on Sunday.
The highest heat index readings will impact the St. Louis metropolitan area.
I'll have more details on next week's rain chances, all morning on Kansas Today and again on KSN News at Noon! If you can not afford an air conditioner, spending some time each day (during hot weather) in an air conditioned environment affords some protection.
Isolated showers and thunderstorms will linger across the Front Range throughout the rest of Saturday evening and overnight.
Highs near Lake Michigan will be a tad lower, but not by much.
This stretch of heat shows little relief at night, especially in numerous urban areas, such as Chicago and NY. Flash flood watches have been posted for parts of the region through Sunday due to the threat of strong thunderstorms.
While a couple storms could produce gusty winds and small hail, organized severe weather is not expected.
